Huh. That is pretty darn slick.

Lenticular printing is not "cheesy old technology". Yes, it may have been used to create goofy bookmarks, etc., but calling the process "cheesy" shows a lack of appreciation for technology in general.

And there could be signs for ice cream parlors where the children see "beg and scream!"

@2, word. My company does a lot of the volume worldwide for this type of printing. I've seen way cool lenticular. We did an annual report for a fortune 500 company that had a golfer doing a full swing on the cover. Something like 23 images inside that one cover.

It's a clever idea I suppose. It will be interesting to hear if it works.

I've seen something similar done in children's museum with "for kid's eyes only" exhibits that are down low. Sometimes parents could walk through without even realizing they were there.

@3 There's a reason why candy displays at the supermarket often go to floor level.

We all recall things from our childhood as being "old and cheesy", but lenticular printing was first used in the U.S. by Adlai Stevenson's 1956 campaign against Dwight Eisenhower. Buttons were made that had Stevenson's face and, when rotated, said, "Stevenson for President". It was considered quite cool.

I wish a quick check of wikipedia would be done before stating "colorful 90s" technology.
"lenticular printing" was popularized in the 40s and 50s and was very popular in my childhood during the early 60s.
